Dispatches from Reykjavík


Late-night snack, complete with owl timer.

The door to our guest house.

Leaving to get breakfast.

Frost or snow?  No idea.

Upstairs at a cafe - perfect for people (and wool) watching.

Lots of coffee here.  Iceland, you and me are gonna get along just fine.

A statue at the top of a hill.  It was very sunny, and very windy, and absolutely freezing.

There's water almost everywhere you look.

I am so freaking glad I brought Crown Prince, as he is the warmest shawl I own.  I have been wearing him babushka-style when it gets windy, because hats fly right off my head.

Too cold - time to go buy some proper mittens.

We were totally not lost on our slightly-longer-than-anticipated walk - see, we found the big church!

I'm glad you're having a good time! Did you go in the church? It's really cool. The architect build another up in Akureyri, which is also inspired by the rocky landscape. Seeing your pictures makes me want to go again! Have you caught any music yet? Thanks for posting!

Thanks! It's been pretty awesome so far - we've seen a bunch of shows, the best of which was Phantogram in the Reykjavík Art Museum. We haven't been in the church yet, but we have some time after the festival ends to go exploring!
